Taking a road trip down Route 66? Stop off in Afton, an original farming and railroad town with some classic Route 66 roadside architecture. Here, visitors can take a tour of the original nine-foot narrow section of the famous route, known as the Ribbon Road, or partake in water sports down at the Grand Lake o’the Cherokees.
Afton is truly classic small town America and photographers will love the many chances to snap shots of the shells of vintage gas stations, hotels, and motels.
The Grand Lake is where locals and visitors can rent boats, jet skis, sailing boats or join yacht tours to explore the expansive waters of the lake. Additionally, outside of town the beauty of Oklahoma beckons with nearby walks and trails in nature.
For rainy days, head to the National Rod and Custom Car Hall of Fame museum, where an impressive display of cars will have motor-enthusiasts entertained for hours.

— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
— Whenever I am making travel plans I always use comparison sites to find the best accommodation for us at the best price. Whether it be for hotel stays or private rentals AllTheRooms makes this so much easier and quicker as it brings all my searches into one place, with a great offering of options
— I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
